49ers Cut Adam Snyder, C.J. Spillman, and 14 others


The 49ers were running short on the offensive line anyway, with the holdout of guard Alex Boone.
But they’re even younger and thinner there now.

According to Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com, the 49ers are cutting veteran offensive lineman Adam Snyder.

There’s apparently nothing happening toward resolving the Boone situation, so the 49ers are going to go into the season with Joe Looney starting at right guard and several young players in key backup roles.

The 32-year-old Snyder started four games for the 49ers last year, and has 87 NFL starts.

The decision to release special teamer C.J. Spillman will save the 49ers at least $1.225 million in cap space. 

The 49ers have also cut RB Glenn Winston, OT Carter Bykowski, LB Shayne Skov, TE Asante Cleveland, LS Kevin McDermott, WR/ST Kassim Osgood, FB Will Tukuafu, G/T Michael Philipp, G Al Netter, DT Mike Purcell, G Ryan Seymour, RB Alfonso Smith, S/ST Bubba Ventrone, and DL Lawrence Okoye.
